Idea for a forum mapgame/war scenario?

Postby ManOfMelon » Fri 17 Oct 2014 02:35

Hi,

Just wanna see how well received a small-medium mapgame/war scenario would be on here. I would need a couple other people to manage it but it definitely seems doable :D.

Things:
1. Teams of countries would be like 1-3 people, would have to vote and agree on decisions to attack/defend/research
2. Could be VERY complex. Monies and resources could become huge factors in fights.
3. Scale is important, not sure which part of the world (probably Europe and western Asia) but not too many countries, that would become too chaotic

If you have ideas, improvements, feedback, comments, questions, whatever, please ask me! This is not very thought out as of now but could be something very fun for the community.

Thanks for reading,
ManOfMelon

I would be interested. And I have a few buddies that also could be as well. Perhaps instead of just one nation, maybe like a coalition? Like, original EE countries (4 nato 4 pact)

Agreed, I think we could have user-made coalitions and trade pacts etc.

Though 4 is a tad small, I like where you're going with it :)

So are you thinking of a twilight imperium type thing, but for wargame?

More or less, yeah. Thing is, doesn't have to follow a Wargame storyline, setting, timeline, etc.
Could be modern and WW3, doesn't matter. Specifics later, idea now.

Ah ok. That seems like it would be very interesting, although not quite sure how you'd pull it off. Keeping track of everything would be a pain in the but, unless you got everyone to be on a skype conference call or something.

Yep. We could use a chat client of some sort but I would simplify the whole thing as much as possible. I just don't want troop masses that lead to unkillable assaults, ruins the fun.

It sounds fun, but I have no idea how these "forum games" work. (seen it on other forums.)

Basically, it is all done through forum posts, people are assigned/pick countries, and it is basically an open "roleplay" for lack of a better word. You may attack or align with whoever you want.
